Windows Authentication

This type of authentication is possibly the easiest of all to implement. Windows authentication can be used in conjunction with almost all authentication methods provided by IIS (e.g. Basic, Digest, NTLM or Kerberos Authentication), except Anonymous Authentication [2,4]. There is no need to write any code to validate the user as IIS has already authenticated their Windows credentials. Basically, Windows authentication makes use of the authentication capabilities of IIS. IIS will complete its authentication first then ASP.NET will use the authenticated identity's token to decide whether the access is granted or denied.
This mechanism is usually implemented when the users are part of Windows domain and the authenticated users are to be impersonated so that the code is executed in the same security context of the user's Windows account [4].
When a user requests specific resources, this request will go to IIS. IIS authenticates the user and attaches the security token to it. It will then pass the authenticated request and security token to ASP.NET. If impersonation is enabled, ASP.NET impersonates the user using the security token attached and sees whether the user is authorized to access the resources in the section in Web.config file. If the access is granted, ASP.NET will send the requested resources through IIS, or else, it sends error message to the user.
